    ok so lately I've been wanting to put my car back to stock and trade it in. I can easily put everything back to stock except for the wheels, I am currently looking to trade my wheels for some oem Si wheels but so far I've had no luck. My question is do any of you guys know how much it would depreciate my car's value if I trade it in with the non OEM wheels? Does it even matter?

    Dealer won't care at all about aftermarket wheels. They just care it has wheels and tires with tread.

    @webby ok thats good! I thought maybe they would start complaining blah blah.

    @ron v If I can find a good deal on one yes, but so far Im leaning towards a GTI. I was talking to @stilletto and he had some good points on the gti. They make crazy power with a tune and bolt ons.

    Dealers DO prefer a Stock trade in, but only if the entire vehicle meets their criteria. If it has too many miles, excessive wear, or just isn't popular in the area, they'll send it off to auction.
